I’ve never cared for Robin, nope.. ( I am not the only one, so it’s good)
She seems to be a better at directing than acting.
But– This story couldn’t advance without her being brought back, sigh ..

At this point in time I’m more interested and excited over Valentin’s story.
Franco and Valentin stuff is what gets me pulled in.

The 2 Jason’s has worn me out and has become ehhh..
It’s has a looooooong run so I’m letting it roll for now.

you are not the only one – with an if and or but I will always LOVE her character of ” ole ” when she was dating… Patrick … during their romance and courtship. AFIRE Our Robin.. found LOVE… married and had that child.. DREAM since that time.. and with Jason Thompson… GONE she lost so much steam. it always seems to me.. Kimberly McCullough… is no longer comfortable acting. I know she LOVES her character and GH.. that’s a life blood that will always be the only if and or but that is is seeing Anna … always… when… Read more »

Hey bro. I know you hate GH without Aron at the helm, but how could this story have worn you out already?? What has happened in two months would have taken a year under Carlivati! Jason would have been stuck in the clinic for months, he would have wandered around town having cliched missed meetings for another couple months, etc. At least this story makes sense within the show’s own reality. I point to Fluke, which dragged on about 6 months too long, and the show admitted to changing the story midway through because savvy viewers guessed very early on… Read more »

I think it’s great when actors who have moved on to other things still want to make occasional appearances. It’s realistic to me. People move away but still come home to visit. Too many times, characters move away never to be heard from again. I understand the reality of that in soaps, but it’s great when these opportunities for Kim/Robin, Bradford/Spinelli, Ingo/Jax (no more…) present itself.

I agree, AJ! You’re spot on. As the World Turns was wonderful at bringing characters back for visits under Douglas Marland’s regime. It IS realistic. I think now a days it may be cost prohibited.

Are you kidding me? I look forward to her visits no matter what! Love Robin… wish she would return permanently !

Even though she is rarely on screen, her visits are so special and so important. Essentially, she is the heart of GH. She is that anchor, that moral centre, that heroine that all soaps used to have, and need more than ever. As Robin brought Jason back to town, she is important to the story. The writers have really plotted all the beats of this story, and I am impressed at how they have picked up on story from years ago and weaving it all together so it makes sense! It has been a LONG time since gH has been… Read more »

They should recast Patrick at least for one visit. with Robin…maybe its Robin who solves the two Jason mystery???

I don’t think a fake Patrick is needed for a short visit, but maybe that explains the Wes Ramsey thing?

Patrick is now Billy Abbott on Y&R and doing very well, I doubt if he would head back to GH.

I’m sure that Robin is only sticking around for the Hellidays, but hopefully she will have some input into the Jason(s) story. She of course thought she was thawing out the real Jason at the time, but he couldn’t speak, so she never got to talk to him and realize whether he acted like the Jason she remembered (aside from a brief example of him using Jason’s “skill set” when they escaped the cryogenic meat locker/clinic in NYC.)

Emma & the new baby will be with her of course, and they will make some excuse why Patrick couldn’t make it.

I HOPE @Satan : she is here for the holidays – Anna NEEDS her family…

if and or but – she does – NOT – need Finn

hahaha…yes she does (need Finn!) I haven’t seen that flirty look in Anna’s eyes for a long time…well, okay, she always seemed to flirt with Andre and they had that dance…but, since the writers dropped that (disco) ball I think she and Finn are great together! As you probably know…

we shall see….

Normally I would be excited and return to watch a few eps with her in it. But with her servicing the Two Jasons, two Carlys and Sonny s/l and the moral center of the show still to the extreme, I can’t think of a reason to stream the show. If it were for a Scorpio/Lavery/Devane story or something important to the core of the show, I, of course, would return. As things stand, GH is nonexistent in my world but at least I still check the headlines for a sign of a pulse from the show.

A coward? He risked his life to save Carly (when they were engaged; took a bullet for her. Had himself committed to a psych ward and made himself to seem crazy…and, LOL, he WASN’T crazy…but acted so to keep Nina safe while she was institutionalized. Had himself injected with drugs just to help her. He also came back to Port Charles and admitted what he’d done…knowing he’d be a target. He’s taken responsibility for everything and when others have excused his behavior as having been caused by the brain tumor …Liz, Kiki, Dr. O, Carly …when she loved him…it was… Read more »

He is a coward because he knows who the real Jason is and is not saying anything it is typical Franco may do the right thing but always to late!Really just not a fan of the character sorry to say!

Hi Jeffrie…It’s okay to disagree…but, LOL, I do. Franco is no more a coward then Elizabeth was when she kept Jake in the dark about being Jason. She did the same thing…because she was afraid of losing him. (But of course that won’t matter and that’ll be the reason she winds up losing him.) Rick Lansing did something similar when he hired Hayden to be “Jake’s” wife…so as to get him away from Elizabeth. Nicolas kept the truth from Jake…when they thought he was Jason…so he wouldn’t lose control of ELQ. I hate when any of the characters do this…it’s… Read more »

Please let the real Jason be Jason(Steve Burton) he’s been on the show for years and he made Jason morgan… no one play Jason like he does..i didn’t watch GH when GH replace him for Billy Miller because I feel like no one plays Jason like steve burton so now that steve burton is back on GH I been watching it and I love his role on the show especially with Sonny and Carly Please keep him as Jason Morgan if he’s not I wont be watching GH so please let him be cold stone

Great to see Robin hit the GH canvas again. We really need to get Patrick back and Robin on a recurring. Contract. GH is on fire right now and we need to keep the momentum. Robin is key to the Jason twin reveal. Like Carly, she knows the real Jason. Kudos to GH!!! It appears a lot of the happenings is tying many people to Port Charles. With the tie to Valentine, then Julian to him and Cassandra with Ana on her trail while in possession of the Jason clue(disco ball) is a masterpiece. Not to mention throwing little deceitful… Read more »

Having grown up on the show, Kimberly has earned the right to appear a few times a year. It would be great if some other characters did the same.

It’s nice to have non-contract characters come back for a short, believable visit. Robin has moved her with her family (which happens in real life) and comes to visit…which means we get to see the character instead of her just non-existing like some other characters that never get a mention. It’s plausible she’d come back to visit Anna just to see her mom…or when Anna was sick, or now when she hears what’s going on with Jason. Very realistic. It’s not a tease…as if they’re implying she’s back for good. She returns sporadically, like Spinelli (who I’d like to see… Read more »

I always liked Robin, well almost except when she was so stupid about good Sonny. I Also think having characters return is great. Scorpio come home. Him I miss. I like Anna with Finn. I like both of them as I refuse to watch the mob ? I don’t watch much. As for who is Jason. I don’t care. I like the one who can walk and talk at the same time. As for who is real, I FF through the mob. So who cares. ?

Back in September of 2018, William Burton was given the position of SVP and Head Of Daytime, Sports and Syndicated Development/Production for ABC Entertainment.  He had been in charge of the the business operations for General Hospital at a network level, while Dummer continued to handle the creative.  However today, Burton was also let-go.

The exits come as ABC and Hulu have consolidated original content under Craig Erwich, and 20th Television and Touchstone TV under Karey Burke.

The layoffs are believed to have effected 12 staff members mostly at the executive level.

Deadline broke the news and then updated their story later today.

Just who and what department in the new structuring will take over General Hospital remains to be seen.  We will keep you posted once any additional news or announcements are made.

Emme Rylan On Her Final GH Scenes: “Laying There Emotionless While My Amazing Costars Cried Over My Comatose Body Was One of the Hardest Acting Challenges EVER!”

If you watched Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, you witnessed an emotional and heartbreaking episode where friends, family, and loved ones had to say their goodbyes to Lulu Spencer (Emme Rylan) before she is transferred to a long-term care facility to be looked after following her brain injuries and surgery which left her in a coma.

This was to mark the last scenes of Emme Rylan who has exited the series after being let-go.  In story, viewers watched as Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), Maxie (Kirsten Storms), Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), Tracy (Jane Elliot) and a grief-stricken Laura (Genie Francis) sat by Lulu’s hospital bedside telling her they will be waiting for her to wake up, as the agonize over the gravity of the situation.

On Wednesday, Rylan took to social media to tell her fans how difficult it was for her to tape those scenes, when she expressed: “Laying there emotionless while my amazing costars cried over my comatose body was one of the hardest acting challenges EVER! They don’t exactly have you practice that in acting school (Thank u to everyone that noticed).”

In response former GH star Ryan Paevey (Ex-Nathan) who also went through a similar on-screen situation when his character was killed-off tweeted back to Em: “I 100% agree and understand, haha.”

The episode gave  Genie Francis a fantastic palette to play and reminded everyone why she is one of the greatest icons of the genre.

So, what did you think of Emme’s statement on trying to get through those difficult scenes as played by her co-stars?  Share your thoughts below.

Daytime Emmys To Remain Virtual For Upcoming 2021 Ceremony

With an uncertain situation of when live events can get back to normal, or as they have been in the past prior to the coronavirus pandemic, The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) announced today that it plans on keeping next year’s Daytime Emmys award show virtual, to allow for the 2022 awards cycle to stay on track.

In fact, all of NATAS’s award ceremonies including: the News and Documentary Emmys, Technology & Engineering Emmys and the Sports Emmys will also remain virtual next year.

The Daytime Emmys became the first major award show to air a virtual presentation that others followed back in late June of this year and aired on CBS.

In a statement, NATAS chairman and CEO Adam Sharp expressed on the organization’s decision:“The current timetables articulated by manufacturers project mass availability of vaccinations for the entire U.S. population by mid-summer 2021, potentially permitting a return to more traditional in-person ceremonies later in the fall. However, we have determined that delaying our 2021 events to possibly allow for a compressed calendar of in-person Emmy ceremonies late in the year would result in unacceptable delays to our awards cycle for 2022. Instead, we have decided to remain “virtual” in the format of our ceremonies for 2021 while relying on a substantially pre-COVID awards calendar. In so doing, we believe we will be best-positioned to return to a full, on-time, traditional schedule of in-person ceremonies in 2022.

The dates currently under consideration for the 48th annual Daytime Emmys which would be via two or three nights of presentations are: a combination of dates from Friday, June 25, Saturday, July 17 and/or Sunday, July 18.

For those entering the competition, the entry deadline is February, 17, 2021 with  the nominations not to come till May or June.

So, what do you think about the Daytime Emmys going virtual again for 2021? Comment below.
